I am pretty
compulsive diligent about checking our online account at Compassion International. Any changes that happen, whether it be a new updated photo or a child leaving the program, can generally be found on your account before you are contacted by a representative from Compassion.
I was thrilled a few days ago to see a new picture of our fine young Mkapa!
This is the first photo we were given.
And this is the new photo. I just love his smile!
(I edited his photo at Picnik so that I can send him a few personalized pictures to give to friends and family!)
Mkapa is still a fairly recent addition to our family, so we don’t know a whole lot about him yet. We did a unit study about his country, Trekking Through Tanzania, shortly after he was assigned to us. My girls were excited to read in his first letter that he can see Mount Kilimanjaro from his home.
Have you received any letters or photos recently? It has been a few weeks since we’ve heard from any of our Compassion kids, so I am hoping for a Happy Dance at the mailbox, soon!
